General Discussion / How To Opt Out Of Junk Mail

Multiple kinds of junk mail
DMAchoice (dmachoice.thedma.org ) should be your first stop because it gives you the opportunity to say no to multiple categories of mail in one place: catalogues, credit offers, magazine offers and other junk mail, such as charity, bank and retail mailings. Members of the Data & Marketing Association (formerly the Direct Marketing Association) would rather not spend their money sending direct mail to people who don’t want to receive it, so they started this service decades ago. I tried it myself and was done in less than three minutes. The service costs $2 and lasts for 10 years.

Credit card and insurance offers
If you’re like many people, credit card offers are one of the biggest categories in your mailbox, which is why this is Step 2. The big credit reporting agencies — Equifax, Experian, Innovis and TransUnion — created a mechanism for people to opt out of preapproved credit card offers and insurance offers. The Fair Credit Reporting Act gives these credit bureaus the right to share our credit histories with businesses that may want to offer us financial products. The Opt Out Prescreen system (optoutprescreen.com) is an attempt to give you a say in the matter. This service is free, though you will have to provide your Social Security number to verify your identity. (Don’t worry. The credit bureaus already have it.) You can opt out online for five years or print out a form that you mail in to opt out permanently. This service can also be accessed on the DMAchoice website.

By the way, in case there is any confusion, Jennie is eating thumb sized chunks.  When i say, for instance "beef and pork combined" I mean a mix of chunks of both proteins.

Good news and bad news

Jennie's last two little poops were formed again, the bad news is the blood is back.

Here is the problem I suspect.  I put her back on the probiotic to help her cope with the sudden changes in the diet (jumping right back into almost full beef, plus the addition of freeze dried beef heart, today)

The probiotic is doing the job on firming, but, for some reason is causing irritation leading to blood.  I don't know why this is so, but I do remember it before, any time I tried to increase the probiotic (or the s.boulardii) the blood gets worse.

Tonight Jennie ate a full meal of beef with no enhancements of any kind. Including her Alnutrin (well still with the tiny bit of Ziwi to help the gravy flavor)

She also had Alnutrin at lunch beef and pork, but there was a few bits of the beef heart added.

Bed time wil be beef and pork again, also with Alnutrin, also with the beef heart.

After today I will stop the probiotic again. (I am not counting the Forti Flora as probiotic. It was being used as enhancement only, any probiotic benefit will have long since been expired, if there was any to begin with, FF is not a very good probiotic).

A lot of changes a bit too quickly, so now I will slow down a little..and aim for adding the liver maybe starting Monday.  So, by next weekend she should be fully balanced with (hopefully) two proteins beef and pork, the freeze dried beef heart as enhancement, the beef liver and the Alnutrin for balancing.

No more probiotic after today.

I am aiming for Columbus Day weekend to start the poop pills.  I am off on Friday the 5th so I wil give her the first one I think Thursday night and will have all day Friday to observe her. I wil be gone a long day on Saturday so I may start slow and skip a day and give the next dose Saturday night, then Sunday night.

it is advised to start with one a day working up to twice a day but many go even slower than that. I may even start every other for a week.  We'll see how it goes.

Getting Jennie to eat the pork and beef is an on going challenge. This morning I remembered some freeze dried beef hearts I bought a while back kept in reserve for emergencies.  Well if this isn't an emergency I don't know what is!  I hate to add yet another new thing to her diet so quickly but I've got to keep her eating.  this morning a bit of beef heart sprinkled over everything had her hoovering it all up in her old style (pork and beef combined).

Since it's something she's never had before EVER, maybe it won't lose it's charm as quickly.  I've been using forti flora mostly but I hate using that stuff, and I've had to add more and more and more.

Her stools are still soft and frequent (since adding the beef so quickly, before that they were starting to firm up, so I have hope they will again as her body adjusts) but I am not seeing any blood!  I've put her back on the probiotic during all these diet changes.  Before I start the poop pills I will have to stop them again. (When doing the poop pills no other probiotic should be used)

In The News / $5 Million Lawsuit Claims Nutrish Dog Food Contains Herbicide Glyphosate

A man from New York is suing Rachael Ray’s “natural” dog food brand, Nutrish, for allegedly containing the “potentially harmful” herbicide glyphosate. In the $5 million class action lawsuit, Bronx resident Markeith Parks argues that it is deceiving for Nutrish to market its food as natural.

“These claims are false, deceptive, and misleading,” reads the suit, according to The Wrap. “The Products at issue are not ‘Natural.’ Instead, the Products contain the unnatural chemical glyphosate, a potent biocide and endocrine disruptor, with detrimental health effects that are still becoming known.”

The chemical, which is often used in weed killers such as Roundup, was found by tests done by an independent lab, state court papers according to the New York Daily News. While the suit says research shows glysphosate is a “probable” human carcinogen, the EPA says the chemical has “low toxicity” for humans.

She had a bit of diarrhea this morning, but it was to be expected with the sudden addition of beef. She's had beef before of course, but except for tiny pieces here and there, not for a long while, since it's been all pork.  I hope she will eat pork this morning, but if she doesn't it's either the Ziwi venison canned or raw beef, not sure which to use.

EDIT

OH HAPPY DAY Jennie ate the blended pork and beef meal. It makes me so sad that she has to be coaxed to come for meals when she's always done her hurry up and feed me song and dance. I miss that so much!

Jennie is still on 2/3 Alnutrin, I think over the weekend I will increase that to full Alnutrin, then start introducing the beef liver next week.  Once she is on fully balanced meals, hopefully pork and beef and liver and Alnutrin, I will begin the poop pills.
